Review summary

Unlike Royal Caribbean that has the adult only and super fun Quest game , this ship doesn’t do that. The 3 tenors show, Forza, was great along with the Cirque like acrobat show but most of the other shows were lackluster. The lobster and most lamb dishes in the dining room were delicious but many other food items weren’t that good. Pizza in the buffet was terrible. Apple pie in dining room was horrible as well as the pitiful cannoli desert.
